Peugeot HR1 Concept: 2010 Paris Auto Show

By luanpa in | October 9, 2010 | (2) Comments

Peugeot has unveiled its HR1 “urban concept car” at the 2010 Paris Auto Show , a bulbous crossover-style vehicle that uses the automaker’s Hybrid4 gasoline-electric powertrain.

The Peugeot HR1 Concept shares the same expressive headlamps with their finely chiselled design and the single “floating” front grille which seems to be detached from the rest of the body, as the SR1.This is true also of the headlamps and “full LED” rear lights, finished in the style of hi-tech jewels which give the car a unique signature by day and by night.

The HR1 concept has a tablet PC for the passenger as well as the latest in head-up displays, audio, navigation and information systems — controlled by a motion-sensing system that lets the driver scroll among menu choices by making prescribed hand gestures.

The 19-inch wheels are fitted with Michelin tires.Under the bonnet, the internal combustion engine which drives the front wheels is a new three cylinder petrol unit.It has a capacity of 1.2 litres and, using Peugeot’s THP technology, produces 110 bhp.The electronically-controlled 6-speed manual gearbox (with control paddles on the steering wheel and a centrally mounted gear lever) coupled with this power train is designed to offer maximum control.

The HR1 boasts an “alternative door structure” as part of its effort to combine as many vehicle body structures as possible.Peugeot says its designers baked elements from the city car, coupe and SUV philosophies into the final look of this hybrid.
